The only problem for Michael Finley as a player is that he cares too much. He takes losses too hard.
It's been difficult to get any continuity offensively. Our defense is definitely better. You can throw a bunch of new guys together and have a better chance to play defense collectively, maybe because of timing or whatever. But we don't know who we are offensively yet.
I'm not a water guy.
Scotty, I couldn't take a dime from you. He said he was the luckiest man in the world. I'm in a position to help people. You don't know how gratifying it is to see somebody's dreams come true. I know a lot of people and I can help Tyler and I don't want a dime. He said someday I want him to give bac
The airport isn't in the way. It is an asset. Just consider: Could things go somewhere else.
We wanted to say Michael was a superstar, but he really wasn't,
I am proud of our team and their hard work. Stone played a great game. We were kind of fortunate,
I've still got a year left on my contract, and I intend to be back next year to coach.
I've always been able to go to him,
He will miss training camp and the first month of next season. This is very important to them.
I never coached anyone going to Vanderbilt. We're a Blue Ribbon-awarded high school, recognized by the president. It's a testament to our school, and Massey helped lead the way.
You have a lot of ups and downs in coaching, especially, but I can't remember any bad times at this point. I mean, they're all good. A lot of tears when you lose, a lot of down times, but I can't remember any of them. They're all positive now. Even the bad times were good.
The next step to his being a great player is to add the pass to his beautiful game,
It was great hanging with Pop and seeing how he does it. I noticed a few new wrinkles, some interesting things he does.
We've got several kids in that 5-6 to 5-9 range. We're definitely a lot smaller than we have been in the past.
I think people expected too much from him. He gave what he could give, and there was a limit to that.
Turnovers down the stretch hurt us. Then Bobby Jackson went crazy on us.
Where ever the Mavericks are today, we owe it to Michael Finley. He was the one guy who stayed when we were a terrible team. He stayed and fought the fight.
We're trying to make the best of a very difficult situation, ... With what Mike's meant to this franchise for many years, he deserves it.
We would play a team that's one hour away 300 miles away from home. That would be fun.
I'm a lot of things, but none of them are great.
I love Maui.
When they key on one player like that, and double-team him and not allow him to [move], that means there are openings for other players.
I'm a running coach and I am going to continue to run, but I would hope that we are better defensively.
If we're gonna win, we have to play up to and beyond our potential. We're capable of doing that.
I feel sad about it,
He just needs a lot of information and he'll get that over the next year or two. You'll really find out exactly what you have probably in two years.
If we're gonna win, we have to play up to and beyond our potential.
[Still, Saturday's announcement was something of a surprise only because Nelson had said he was going to stay through next year.] I'm in my last years as a coach, ... I'm going to retire. I have this one and one more [year on my contract]. I expect to coach til the end. I want Avery to get some expe
This is the best team in basketball, ... They have a better team than the L.A. Lakers.
